    “Exceeded expectations!”

    I booked this cottage for a number of reasons, it was in an area we'd not stayed in before but wasn't far from my home town to catch up with friends and to be honest it was a bargain price. Because of a couple of negative reviews we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised! Contact with Tracy was easy and pleasant before and during rental.

    I booked this cottage for a number of reasons, it was in an area we'd not stayed in before but wasn't far from my home town to catch up with friends and to be honest it was a bargain price. Because of a couple of negative reviews we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised! Contact with Tracy was easy and pleasant before and during rental. We were aware of issues people had had with the driveway and so familiarised ourselves with it via Google Maps, Tracy also advised on it prior to our arrival and although tight my husband quite quickly became expert at reversing our Astra estate in so don't let this put you off! Once in and with the gate shut the terraced back yard is completely dog friendly and has great views. Slightly disappointed that the hot tub wasn't available but completely understandable, it was February after all! The house itself is on the small side but perfectly formed! With a very well equipped kitchen (we baked gingerbread men, made spaghetti bolognaise and chicken curry during our stay without issue) and the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. Also pleased with the number of walks available literally from the doorstep, took the dog on a different route each morning! Lots to do within a 15-30 minute drive too, we enjoyed Monkey Forest and Dimmingsdale (Ramblers Retreat had quirky outdoor seating area with food and drinks to die for!). Just a little further away we discovered Thornbridge Brewery, their tours are great value and can be prebooked online, even the drive was delightful and Bakewell itself was stunning with a variety of lovely original shops. About 20 min walk from the house gets you to Churnet Valley Railway (stunning steam engine, very friendly volunteers and good value gift shop) and the Railway Inn with good food, great staff, dog and child friendly. All in all, we had a great time and would highly recommend. Thanks Tracy and Rob for letting us stay in your lovely, cosy home from home!

The property

This cosy, traditional, brick-built semi-detached cottage is set in the village of Kingsley near the Peak District and Alton Towers.

With views, an inflatable hot tub and an open fire, this property is an ideal base for a small family or group of friends to explore the region.

The bedrooms are furnished with good quality beds with the twin room enjoying countryside views.

The sitting room is a very warm and cosy place to sit and gaze into the open fire and the modern kitchen with dining area is a great place to gather for a home-cooked meal and discuss the day’s adventures.

You could of course just spend the day sat on the deck in the enclosed south-facing garden or sit in the hot tub and watch the sun drop over the hills.

There’s even a Wendy House with toys to keep the children entertained.

There is however, plenty to tempt you out for the day within a short walk; you could be on the platform waiting to jump on board a steam train or those wishing to travel under their own steam can join the towpath of the famous Caldon Canal.

Explore the beautiful countryside and heritage using pedal power, safe in the knowledge that the owner has installed anchor points in the lockable garage to protect bikes when not in use.

This cosy home-from-home makes a fantastic base camp for adventure and there’s plenty to entertain you all year round.

About the location

KINGSLEY

Alton Towers 8 miles; Leek 10 miles; Stoke-on-Trent 10 miles.

Kingsley is a quaint rural village in the Staffordshire countryside.

It is home to a couple of pubs and the Kingsley Bird & Falconry Centre which makes for a fascinating day out.

Just eight miles away is Alton Towers Theme Park, where kids of all ages can test their nerve on a wide selection of rides.

The Staffordshire Way, a long distance walking route, runs through the village, and there is a vast selection of walks for all abilities on the doorstep, plus there is an excellent golf course in Whiston.

The Peak District National Park is easily accessed to the north, whist the Pottery towns of Stoke-on-Trent have a wide array of interesting museums to visit.

There are also fascinating relics of the area’s industrial heritage - the Caldon canal (built in 1776 and restored and opened for navigation in 1974) runs through the valley and visitors will enjoy a scenic ride on the Churnet Valley Railway steam trains.

A great touring base for exploring all of the Peak District and the Staffordshire Moorlands. .
